  1. I've been meaning to get into road cycling for a while now and, now that I have my own road bicycle, I'm worried about getting flats. I haven't ridden it yet as I've had no time for that. But I've seen these set of tires online that everyone seems to praise due to their resistance to sharp objects such as thorns and broken glass. How well do they work on the roads of South Africa? I ride a lot in the Waterkloof, Pretoria area, for reference.
  2. Good afternoon Hubland, To those who own a pair of Powertap wheels, who has also been having constant issues with front wheel punctures?
  3. Yesterday cycling home after work from Bellville, where you turn off on amandel road from the bottelary road, there were millions of duwwels across the entire road! I got two in my front weel and one in the back, and decided to walk back to the petrol station and fix things there. everywhere I looked the things were scattered. I think they were cutting the grass there and caused it. I eventually decided to take the main road rather. Was a long day on the bike with the wind, sigh
  4. Please dont laugh.... I have serious problems with getting flats on my spinning bike. I ran for a couple of years with out any problems and now during the last 8 months I had 3 flats? I did replace the tyre and it is still happening. I use a cycle ops fluid trainer and even take the tension of the tyre , must i also deflate the tyre like I do with my road bike when not in use??
  5. Do you?....man i must say i'm a fan of tubeless,I resisted the transformation in the beginning but must confess they have certainly proven their worth .(we'll underplay the couple of occasions where the hole couldn't seal and called for a tube insert mmm rather messy and can see why some riders carry wet wipes). So my question is after a days riding and you check the tyres and find a collection of devil thorns / duweltjie or dubbeltjies whatever you call those those little pointy buggers i usually find with my bare feet. So the whole ones I remove but embedded in the tyre are the points of plenty more If i cant grab the protruding end with my finger nails i just normally leave them in,I suppose because they are pointy shaped they should dislodge after a couple of rides....explaining why sometimes i have slight unexplained tyre pressure loss.
